Particle Collision #5 (under construction)


This project has had me working a very complicated background prior to adding the particle tracks themselves. The two solid lines, coming from both the bottom and the right, are the two which collide. From the point of collision in the centre, I’ll be adding the resulting various curly tracks (of which three are already strongly or lightly indicated).

The upshot of this experiment has me looking back at the simplicity of #4 with some trepidation, wondering if a complicated background is really adequate. I’ll be finishing it, of course, and deciding then how the work relates aesthetically, before starting #6.

      I use it constantly and have been for many years now. In a way, it’s also a good way to suppress any urge to smoke, what with the lens in my left hand and the brush in my right.

    One pointedness ( that may be a pun! Sorry). Has a restless vibrancy, that background…

  3. Fabulous pattern – really does draw the eye into the center where you’ve got that bright orange circular pattern.

  4. Really interesting squiggles and lines going on. That magnifying glass is very unusual. Very mysterious image.
